Mining and Quarrying industry safety reset

Mining Safety Reset 2019

22 July, 2019 –

The Mining and Quarrying industry across Queensland will begin a safety reset from today in response to the six fatalities that have occurred this year.

Every mine and quarry worker across Queensland will be invited by their employer to participate in this industry-wide safety reset.

A safe and healthy work environment is a priority for everyone working on mine and quarrying sites across Queensland – any loss of life or serious injury is unacceptable.

A safety forum will be convened at the annual Queensland Mining Industry and Health and Safety Conference on 18th August, where there will be a report back on the progress and implementation of the Safety Reset.
